The Best Man Plan (Boots and Bouquets #1) by Jaci Burton

Image
This was such an easy read! One of those books you can loose yourself in and completely lose track of time. I certainly did and pretty much finished this beauty in one sitting. Three days before Erin Bellini's wedding, her fiancĂ© breaks up with her--in an email! Hurt and embarrassed, she decides to have a fling with veterinarian Jason Callum, who's both the best man and the hottest guy she knows. But Jason wants a lot more than just a one-night stand with the woman he's cared about for years. So he's taking things slow. And hot. And showing Erin what real love can look like.

Suddenly Erin finds herself spending a lot more time with Jason than she intended. Feelings she never planned on having again are wrapping around her heart, refusing to let go. Erin isn't sure she can trust her instincts, though. After all, she made a terrible choice with her ex-fiancĂ©. But Jason intends to convince her that he's the best man for her, and that what they have together is a re…

Fable (Fable #1) by Adrienne Young

Image
Adrienne Young's book Sky in the Deepwas no doubt one of my all time favorite young adult fantasy stand alone books. Sadly, the book she wrote immediately after that was one of my biggest disappointments. So I really didn't know what to expect of this one. The premise sounded good. The blurb was promising. And in the end, I would say it delivered. It wasn't as amazing as her first book, but it wasn't bad and I am actually looking forward to the next one.  As the daughter of the most powerful trader in the Narrows, the sea is the only home seventeen-year-old Fable has ever known. It’s been four years since the night she watched her mother drown during an unforgiving storm. The next day her father abandoned her on a legendary island filled with thieves and little food. To survive she must keep to herself, learn to trust no one and rely on the unique skills her mother taught her. The only thing that keeps her going is the goal of getting off the island, finding her father…

"Quickies" August 2020

Hello Hello Sunnies! :)
This past month I've read a few older publications, and although I don't have the time to write long reviews on all of them, here is a quick recap (specially for those that are not following me on Instagram):- Ride Hard by Laura Kaye5 StarsI absolutely LOVED this one. I enjoy MC romances most of the time so I was really looking forward to this one and it did not disappoint. It might not be what you would usually expect from an MC romance as the riders here are all good guys and the club is about helping others, but don't you think for a second that will mean less grit to the story. President Dare takes his duties seriously, his father did not, he run a corrupt MC and his brother and mum paid the price for that life. Dare dedicates his life to helping those in need. Haven is one of those. Her father is a horrible human being and he is helping her hide and start a new life. They are very different from each other, but that is what makes them so perfect…

Sometimes you only realize you've been missing something when a favorite author of yours comes up with something new. I did not know I liked charming Bollywood actors, now I know I do. Thanks for that Juliette Cross! I think.... hehe (as if I needed another obsession)

A fun, whimsical, and charming story with a touch of Greek mythology. What is not to love?

The Pull of The Stars by Emma Donoghue

A lone nurse in a maternity ward during the flu pandemic of 1918
I don’t often read general fiction. But when I do, it is often Emma Donoghue. Her books Room and Akin where great stories and I was certain so would The Pull of the Stars be. I was not disappointed. I was enthralled by it from beginning to end and I hope you all love it as much as I did! 

The book takes place during the height of the great flu pandemic and is almost entirely set in a little room, turned maternity ward, at an Irish hospital. Nurse Julia Power, due to many members of staff falling ill themselves ends up solely responsible for the pregnant mothers in that room. All assistance she gets is from a young girl who never helped in a hospital before and Dr. Kathleen Lynn, a rumored rebel on the run from the police. She immediately proves to be a lot more responsible and knowledgeable than the young male doctor in the hospital.  Three days… that is the entirety of the book. And yet, so much happens. It was an emotiona…

The Blurb: It was love at first brush-off...
Dr. Daniel Durand wanted Winnie Baker the minute he laid eyes on her. Never mind that she's his attending physician's daughter, can't stand him, and she's a few years older than him.

After bonding over early-morning Mexican food, can he convince her that he's just the arm candy she needs for that wedding...and get her to consider one of their own?
Winnie Baker isn’t taking her cousin to another wedding. Her mentor's big day is far too important to miss. And she's not going by herself, not with her ex-boyfriend promising to be in attendance and…
